  3. The goal is for people with the various letters to get together and spell words.
  4. Once they have spelled a word, they must write the word on their cards and have both people sign it.
  5. They can then separate and look for new words.
  6. Award a prize to the person with the longest list of words.
  7. And you might award a special prize to the members involved in making the longest word.


NOTE: If your group size is bigger than the length of the word, double up on some of the letters, but realize that there may be additional words possible that are not in the list above.
